This feature was originally published around fifteen years ago on Open2.net, and has struggled a little in the last few years as it was created using older web technologies. We think it's worth a bit of an update, and we hope to bring you a new version soon. In the meantime, because it's remained popular, we're offering the two key segments of the original, and an easier-to-follow guide to creating your own ecosphere.

DIY Science: Ecosphere
Use our easy to follow guide to create a mini-version of an ecosphere, and watch what happens to the plants and creatures inside.
